The Silent Years (Part One)

The Silent Years (Part One)

Since we weren't able to finish our Silent Years elective in person, we will be uploading audio of each session onto our blog! We've included the audio from the first session above.

Have you ever flipped from the book of Malachi, the last book of the Old Testament, to Matthew, the first book of the New Testament, and noticed the world is completely different? A new empire, new people groups, new cultures, a new language…everything has changed. There are approximately 400 years between the Old and New Testament, and these “silent years” profoundly shaped the world that Jesus would enter into. This elective will focus on the historical, social, cultural, religious, and even geographical changes that impacted God’s people during these often forgotten years, and then to begin to look at Jesus’ own life and ministry through this new lens.
